CentOS 5 :: Will 5.3 Support My X3100 Graphics Card And Bcm 4311 Wlan Card
Mar 30, 2009
very much like everybody i am also waiting for centos 5.3, because 5.2 could not sit on my notebook due to obvious driver issues. would anybody tell if centos 5.3 support my x3100 graphics card and bcm 4311 wlan card?
I am thinking about buying a new computer. It has ATI Radeon HD 3000 Graphics. Does Fedora 14 support ATI Radeon HD 3000 Graphicst? Will I have to install a driver and if so where would I download the driver?
I just bought a new graphics card and installed it. it works perfectly although my sound worked perfectly this morning and I think the graphics card is overriding my built in sound card. I need help fixing the sound. The graphics card I bought is an ATI Radeon Cedar HD 5450 The sound I want to use is HDA VIA VT82xx when I run alsamixer I get Card:
Looking for a card reader/writer that will support most current card types. I am running Fedora 12 x86_64 on a home-grown desktop. Are there any gotchas, that I need to watch for?Also, Internal vs. external, any benefits of one over the other, or is it just personal preference?
I have a dvr card that is a Softlogic 6x10 line of MPEG-4 codec card that uses mpeg 4. This is the driver that they recommend that I use but it is for ubuntu. Is there a Centos 5.5 equivalent? [URL]. This is the card: [URL].
This is what appears in lspci: PHP Code: 03:06.0 Multimedia video controller: Unknown device 9413:6010
I found this on the net: [URL] and installed PHP Code: kmod-video4linux-PAE-0.0-7.20100410.2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpmkernel-ml-PAE-2.6.37-0.3.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm
I get this error when I run a modprobe budget_av: PHP Code: modprobe budget_avWARNING: Error inserting videobuf_dma_sg (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.32.1.el5PAE/weak-updates/video4linux/videobuf-dma-sg.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)WARNING: Error inserting v4l1_compat (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.32.1.el5PAE/weak-updates/video4linux/v4l1-compat.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)WARNING: Error inserting videodev (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.32.1.el5PAE/weak-updates/video4linux/videodev.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)WARNING: Error inserting saa7146_vv (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.32.1.el5PAE/weak-updates/video4linux/saa7146_vv.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)FATAL: Error inserting budget_av (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.32.1.el5PAE/weak-updates/video4linux/budget-av.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
I have a desktop that has a d-link DWL-520 wireless card, which was working under Windoze. Today I installed Centos 5.4 on the system , which went cleanly. I then used Network Configuration to set up the wireless card. I specified to use DHCP, set the SSID and authentication password. When I tried to activate the card I get these error messages
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0.
The hardware manager seems to have correctly identified the card and chipset, (Intersil Prism 2.5) and installed driver hostap_pci which came with the distro. This web site seems to suggest that this is the correct driver: [URL] searching forums I've found a few references to these errors, but they were from several years ago, and for different distros and cards. I did find a reference to using Network Manager to configure the card instead of Network Configuration. I started the NM service and configured a connection using it instead, but still no luck.
I have a Dell Dimension 3000 with an integrated Intel 865g graphics card that I am trying to use in X on Centos 5.4 i386. The "810" driver (what Centos configures by default) works, but will not display at 1600x900. Strangely enough, it will actually work at higher resolutions such as 1600x1200, but 1600x900 fails, even with 915resolution and 855resolution. The "intel" xorg driver (included with Centos) locks up the entire machine when starting X, so thats a no go as well.
The "fbdev" driver works but, once again, won't display 1600x900, because that resolution doesn't work properly with the version of the intelfb kernel module that Centos bundles. Fedora Core 12 works perfectly fine at 1600x900 on the machine. I think that if I could get a newer xorg installation (or perhaps just a driver) going under Centos, it might fix the problem. I couldn't find any 3rd party repos containing such packages. I'd really rather run Centos on the machine, due to the package stability (yes, I see the irony here).
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard with integrated graphics that shows up on lspci as an ATI Radeon 2100. I also bought a PCI-Express Nvidia graphics card so I could use the VDPAU feature on Linux (plays H.264 in hardware). The BIOS has three settings about which display to initialize first:
I cannot get anything, not even a splash screen or POST messages, to emerge from the PCI-Express graphics card. (I'm using a DVI connector; the card also has an HDMI output.)I cannot get the kernel lspci to see the graphics card; the only VGA controller it acknowledges is the integrated one.Running dmidecode acknowledges the existence of an x16 PCI Express slot, and it says
Current usage: Unknown
There is an additional BIOS setting called "Internal Graphics Mode" which is normally set to "Auto" which means it is supposed to prefer a PCI Express VGA card. I set it to "Disabled" which now means I'm getting no output at all. I will soon be learning how to do a BIOS reset!
Other information: The PCI-E card is a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210. This is a fanless card. Although there are no fans to see turning, the heat sink on the PCI-E card is definitely getting hot, so the card is getting some sort of power.It gets all its power from the PCI-E slot; there is no external power connector.The BIOS is an AMI Award BIOS.how can I make the PCI Express graphics card visible to Ubuntu?
I'm trying to find out when QME2572 (Qlogic) card became support by the kernel. We have a RHEL 5.1 system that is moving to new hardware, however the kernel at this release doesn't support the new hardware, due to the Qlogic card change. I tired the Redhat KB and Bugzilla. Is there a Kernel change list etc I can search. Never really played around with the kernel too much so I'm just after some pointers for looking up this information. Offically its not supported until Redhat 5.3, I'm trying trying to research kernel info so I can tell the customer they have to upgrade.
specific Ubuntu supported WLAN PCI-cards? This link shows a list of supported PCI-cards, but which is best: [URL] And the installation needs to be easy! Iï¿½ve tried installing these PCI-cards in my computer, useing Linux drivers, NdisWrapper, etc. Unforutately without any success:
- DWL-G510, Ralink Chipset, Ralink RT2561/RT61
- Realtek Semiconductor, RTL-8185 IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller
I have been using FC10, it works well with wlan for sometime and goes inactive after some time and hence network goes unavailable. Even after few attempts to reconnect doesn't help. Rebooting helps in bringing it back temporarily.
I have a new Dell laptop that I installed OpenSUSE on, but can't get the Dell WLAN card (Broadcom) to activate. I can see it in the hardware listing, and I can attempt to set it up using iwconfig, but when I do an ifconfig it does not show, and when I do a ifconfig wlan0 it tells me the interface is not installed. I feel like I am missing something basic, but just can't seem to put my finger on it.
I have bought a new laptop with win7 on it , I delete win7 and install ubuntu64 everything is ok but my wireless card won't work ( it is recognized) and even I can connect to INTERNET but nothing is download or upload so I have bought another usb wireless card but now when I connect this new card to my laptop it still tries to use the old one and so I could not connect to internet
I'm a new user of Ubuntu and I think I need some help but let me mention before that I got this up working on a Debian system.My current kernel version is $ uname -r 2.6.32-27-generic.The problem is that my wlan card is not working any more such that my system freezes every time I enable networking with the hardware switch on my laptop.Therefore I bought a USB - WLAN stick and try to get this working.
Network Manager has the option "enable wireless" greyed out if I disable the hardware switch.If I enable the hardware switch and remove the module of my wlan CARD before (modprobe -r iwl3945) it says "wireless disconnected" for all networks.
My ubuntu was working fine till morning but all of a sudden in the evening , its WICD manager stopped detecting my wlan card , because of this it couldn't detect any wireless network.I formatted and installed the fresh copy, but the problem remains the same.Interesting thing is that the same lan card works fine for Win7 OS.Even earlier in ubuntu it was working fine.I have dual boot machine...
I am considering installing CentOS 5.3 on my laptop, and currently the only thing stopping me is the WLAN in the computer. This laptop uses the RTL8187B USB dongle chip as the internal WLAN card, and support for it was only "recently" added to the kernel. Now, I know CentOS uses the 2.6.18 kernel, though not as "such", but rather its API, and have a LOT of hardware support, security updates and enhancements found in recent kernel releases backported to this kernel version (or rather kernel version API). This particular piece of hardware support was tricky at best and only began to appear in the Linux kernel up until version 2.6.24, which I do believe introduced a heavy change in the kernel driver API or something to that effect,
which would mean that driver code from a more recent kernel release (say 2.6.26/27) may not be all that portable to an older driver API version, hence, that's why I ask if support for hardware that has been only recently added to the kernel may be found in the CentOS kernel. I do not know how much further tweaked the CentOS kernel is in regards to the RHEL kernel, so I guess I could find out whether support is there or not by poking around the .src.rpm for each kernel (RHEL 5.3 and CentOS 5.3) and see, I was hoping, however that someone would know without having to poke around the source packages and the patches.
I am attempting to install a WLAN card driver but I'm having trouble with running "make". When I launch it it tells me I need to set the kernelpath, but my problem is that I have no idea where the kernel even is inside of fedora. I'm on Fedora 14.
Am having intermittent connectivity issues with my stock Atheros AR5212 on my Thinkpad X61 using Ubuntu 10.04. Am wondering if there is a known to be good b/g min-PCIe card that I can replace my AR5212 with that would be more solid in Ubuntu?
I'm having trouble setting up new Alix URL... system with a wireless card. I got the card from an old working Buffalo AirStation router. The card is a WLI-MPCI-G54 and is using Broadcom BCM4306 chip. I've installed Debian on the system.My goal is to make a wireless access point by using hostapd authentication service. I thought it might be a good idea to verify that the wlan-card is working properly first, but it can't seem to detect my local wlan.
just installed opensuse 11.3 on my asus eee pc 1018p and have severe problems to make the wireless network card work. tried to install the driver with ndiswrapper and b43-cutter, but without any success. ifconfig does not show any wlan0 device. below find output of
lspci -v dmesg ifconfig
installed opensuse on several notebooks/netbooks before but never ran into serious trouble.
I have 2 wlan cards. wlan0 and wlan1. wlan0 is in AP mode(Master mode) using hostap. wlan1 is connected to another wireless network and is in Managed mode. Now I want to make a bridge between wlan0 and wlan1. I do it like that:
I upgraded Ubuntu to 11.04 I can NO longer connect wirelessly using my BCM4312 WLAN Card. It connected with no problems before dist upgrade using Ubuntu 10.04. Im really not sure why I cannot connect. I cannot even see my router in edit wireless connections settings. I can however see my neighbours routers who are using WPA2 encryption. But I cannot see my router.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled The Broadcom STA proprietry wireless driver several times using Additional drivers. This did not fix my issue.
I am connected by ethernet at the moment so I do have internet connection.
